I think, if they are being totally honest, most people 'of a certain age' ( and I'm one) are 'doing the right thing' primarily in order to stay healthy themselves. Helping others is a by product but the basic human instinct is to survive.

Nice comment

   "Has anyone else noticed that all the current lockdown areas appear to be in the North or Wales? Has the virus decamped from southern England." (jillruss.)

   According to the map on the Gov.UK website, which is a few days out of date, there are a lot more infections in the northern towns than in London. I am not sure where the equivalent big cities in the south are, apart from London?

London currently has less than 50 cases per 100k of population, whereas Newcastle has 233. That's why there's a local lockdown in Newcastle but not in London. The area I live in is near to those that are currently under local lockdown, our local leaders are hoping to avoid a lockdown here although we are currently in an area of enhanced support with a figure of 55. The demographic of the cities in the north that are under local lockdown is unlikely to be comparable to cities in the south such as Bristol, Portsmouth, Plymouth.
